Advances in embedded systems have resulted in the development of wireless sensor networks, which not only provide unique opportunities for monitoring but also controlling homes, cities and the environments. Recent advancements in wireless sensor network have resulted into many new protocols some of them are specifically designed for sensor network for detecting the event and routing the event related information to the base station in efficient manner. This paper surveys recent event driven routing protocols for wireless sensor network. The authors have compared various event driven routing protocols using different parameters like Sink Centric, Node Centric, Reliability, Congestion control, Energy Efficiency, Loss reliability and loss recovery.
